6's would eat up all the extra hp gain, and XR's wouldn't hold up. There is talk of Ilmore developing their own drive and that would be a great thing for us. Competition would bring innovation and price reduction.
We have seen the TEAGUE PLATINUM DRIVE comfortably handle 900 HP with proper driving skills so the 700+ ILMOR would be fine for that application.

A friend races the Viper cars and they literally punish them. They very rarely break.

Teague sells HP motors. Are they currently offering a package of that drive and a 700+ HP motor with a warranty?

Seriously, just how long do you think 900 hp motors connected to Teague drives would last on a 38 Top Gun?

They should hold up....again depending on ones driving ability. If your good with the sticks you should be fine.
